Pulitzer Prize photos from Iraq

April 07, 2005

Most likely you never saw any of these photos from Iraq. They are striking and demonstrate the disconnect between what we see in American media coverage versus the reality on the ground. In no way do I mean to politicize the American troops or Iraqi civilians in these photographs. I just feel strongly that if American media had any intention of portraying what it is truly like for U.S. troops and Iraqi citizens in Iraq, we would have seen more of these award-winning photos before they won awards.
